Wide receiver Bobby Wade made his first public comments since creating a mini controversy with his remarks on KFAN this week.
In an on-air interview Wade said Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher used a lewd word to describe new quarterback Jay Cutler. Word quickly reached Chicago and Urlacher was forced to deny saying those things to Wade when they hung out in Las Vegas recently.
Asked about it after Friday’s first practice, Wade said: “It’s something I definitely probably shouldn’t have said. I can definitely tell you that. If I had the opportunity back, I probably wouldn’t have said it. However, moving forward it was said and my communication with Brian is still good. It is what it is. Like I said, if I had the opportunity I wouldn’t say it again.”
Asked if he stands by the accuracy of what he said, Wade joked: “I have no idea what you’re talking about.”
Wade said he talked to Urlacher to clear things up.
“That’s the biggest thing. You guys know he’s a friend of mine. You don’t want to ever put anybody in a situation like that. He’s just a really good guy. But we’ve communicated and everything’s good so it’s not a problem.”
